2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Interior Review


Interior: 7.8

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Velar earns higher interior scores than most luxury midsize SUVs, and for good reason. It's outfitted in the finest of materials, and it has an appealing amount of space. The Velar also features a high-tech infotainment system.

  • "Befitting its eye-catching exterior, the Velar's interior is stunning, especially when outfitted in white leather." -- Autotrader
  • "Attractive interior materials have the same level of elegance as the exterior, including a repeating diamond-cut pattern that resembles the British flag. Trim options include aluminum, multiple woods and carbon fiber. Our test car wore comfy leather and microfiber suede. But for the bovine-empathetic, Land Rover offers an alternate fabric interior that employs wool and material made from reclaimed plastic, though you'd never guess it." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "The rest of the Velar's cabin is no less stunning than its technological complement. There's good visibility all around and the interior is flooded with light thanks to an available panoramic moonroof, and all materials and switchgear looks and feels top quality." -- CNET (2018)


The 2-row Velar can seat five people. The seats are cushy and supportive, with ample power adjustments up front to set a comfortable traveling position. Standard features include synthetic leather and suede upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. In addition to posh leather upholstery options – like perforated, grained leather and Windsor leather – the Velar is available with heated rear seats, and 20-way power-adjustable front seats with heating, cooling, and massage functions. You can also opt for a power-adjustable steering column.

The Velar has a full set of LATCH child car-seat connectors on the outboard rear seats, as well as a third tether anchor for the middle seat.

  • "There's ample head-, leg- and shoulder room in both the front and power-reclining rear seats, and the optional panoramic sunroof gives an impression of even more space." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "There's good visibility all around and the interior is flooded with light thanks to an available panoramic moonroof, and all materials and switchgear looks and feels top quality. Seats are all-day comfortable, augmented by available heating, cooling and massage." -- CNET (2018)
  • "Not all automotive leathers are created equal, but they do all tend to cover the seats of luxury vehicles. Velar's wool-ensconced interior feels strikingly different yet familiar; it's like you're home but in a car. Which is precisely the point: One goal of the Velar's interior design team was to make the cabin more like a living space – from the leather, cozy wool textiles, and wood paneling to the twin gloss-black screens mounted flush in the center console." -- Motor Trend (2018)

Interior Features

The Velar’s Touch Pro Duo infotainment system uses two 10-inch touch screens, and it comes with Bluetooth, eight-speakers, voice commands, and smartphone integration via InControl Apps. The system has crisp graphics, and it garners far more praise than Land Rover's older InControl interface. However, it can be slow to respond to inputs and distracting to use while driving. Other standard features in the Velar include a panoramic sunroof and proximity key entry.

All Velar models come with a host of active safety features, including emergency brake assist, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

Upgrades include four-zone climate control, ambient lighting, satellite radio, HD radio, an 11-, 17-, and 23-speaker Meridian sound system, a navigation system, two USB ports in the second row, a rear-seat entertainment system with two 8-inch screens in the headrests, and an interactive driver display.

There are also several safety options, such as a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control with stop-start functionality, high-speed emergency braking, a head-up display, a driver drowsiness monitor, rear cross traffic alert, traffic sign recognition with adaptive speed limiter, blind spot monitoring, and active park assist for parallel and perpendicular parking.

  • "Dual touchscreens and touch-sensitive steering wheel controls look fantastic but are slow to respond, unnecessarily complicating all tasks. The steering wheel controls are especially unresponsive, which makes accessing the driver-specific functions a nuisance and a distraction. This system is difficult to live with."-- Edmunds
  • "The Velar hosts the debut of two high-definition 10-inch configurable touch screens called the Land Rover InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system. Name aside, after a couple days driving around in a Velar in Norway, I found the intuitiveness of their operation refreshing, considering the maddening complexity of some luxury rivals (cough Cadillac, cough BMW, cough Mercedes, cough Tesla)." -- Autoweek (2018)
  • "In keeping with the reductionist theme, Touch Pro Duo employs precious few buttons, a volume knob, and two knurled rings prominently embedded in the lower touchscreen to change function depending on what system is engaged. If you don't mind fingerprints or having to look when you touch (capacitive buttons provide no haptic feedback, so visual confirmation is required), the system works well and is substantially more responsive than previous JLR touchscreens." -- Motor Trend (2018)


The Velar has more cargo space than the average luxury 2-row SUV. There are multiple ways to expand the 34.4-cubic-foot cargo area, thanks to the standard 40/20/40 split-folding back seat. Folding down all rear seats opens up a maximum storage capacity of 70.1 cubic feet. A hands-free liftgate is standard with all trims except for the base model.

  • "With a cargo volume of 34.4 cubic feet in the back and 70.1 cubic feet with the 40/20/40-split second row folded, the Velar's storage space rivals that of larger midsize SUVs." -- Edmunds (2018)
